Tshirt En T-skjorte T-skjorta T-skjorter T-skjortene
Sweater En genser Genseren Gensere Genserene
Hoodie Hettegenser Hettegenseren hettegensere hettegenserene
Jacket En Jakke Jakka Jakker Jakkene
Pants En bukse Buksa Bukser Buksene
Shorts En skjorts* Skjortsen Skjorts Skjortsene
Dress En kjole Kjolen/a Kjoler Kjolene
Skirts Et skjørt Skjørtet Skjørt Skjørtene
Shoes En sko Skoene/a Sko Skoene/a
Socks En sokk Sokken Sokker Sokkene

*Comes directly from the english word, so it is kind of special with the S at the end. We just changed the «Sh» to a «skj»

The en/a and ene/a  is because they are easily said both ways, at least for me J

 The sentences:

”I love your shoes”  – ”Jeg elsker skoene dine”

”You have a nice sweater” – ”Du har en fin genser”

”Where did you buy those pants?” – “Hvor kjøpte du de buksene?”

“You are pretty in that dress” – “Du er pen I den kjolen”

“I want a jacket like that” – “Jeg vil ha en jakke som den”

If you want to learn more compliments, watch the «Compliments» video.

”I have blue pants” – ”Jeg har blå bukser”

”My sweater is warm” – ”Genseren min er varm”

For more adjectives, you can also go see the «Adjective 1″ and «Adjective 2″ video to get more adjectives to use in these sentences!

“This skirt is new” – “Dette skjørtet er nytt”

”This dress is new” – ”Denne kjolen er ny”


Because the word ”Skjørt” (skirt) is neutral, the word ”Dette” (this) is with T’s instead of N’s. Because of the neutral word the word “nytt” (new) also gets T’s after it. We would also say “Det skjørtet” (That skirt).

The word “kjole” is a female/male word (you can use both) and that is why we use “Denne” because we would have said “Den” (that).

Hope this helps! =)
